Winemaker's Notes:

Tasting: * color: ink , crimson * flavors: fruits, licorice * Rich and mighty, very youth and of a 'great accuracy' * Grape variety: 85% Grenache, 10% Syrah, 3% Mourvèdre, 2% various * Stems removal: 80 % * Maceration: 28 days * Manual must pressing: once a day * Vines age : 60 à 100 ans * Elevage : 25% barrels (40% new), 75% vat. A bottle which can be kept for very long time. 10 000 to 15 000 bottles per year. VINTAGE This vintage comes from four parcels located in different soils which perfectly match during assembly : a « southern » pebbly soil brings fat and power, a Chaupin-like soil for freshness and acidity, a red clay pebbly soil (but very late picked because located to the north of the appellation) brings structure and body, and finally a sandy-limestone soil for smoothness. Harvesting took place between 23 of september and 5 of october. Grapes had an extraordinary concentration with mature skins which, as on Chaupin soil, have benefited from september optimal climate conditions. The result is a very large crimson red wine with cramped but smooth tannins, a nice balance, as well as black fruits and liquorice flavor.
